6,604 fruit trees planted along the Amazon

“These thousands of fruit trees are reforesting areas of the rainforest in a time when the entire world is feeling deeply concerned for deforestation, and it’s being done in the right way."

As Brian Landever, Director of our in-country partner CONAPAC, says above, FTPF's work is in the Peruvian Amazon is critical in combating deforestation while at the same time providing income, nutrition, and training to families in rural river communities.

During our visit, FTPF staff and volunteers worked together with our partners and more than 300 community volunteers and students to plant 450 trees at schools and in public spaces, as well as distribute trees directly to families. Everyone we worked with was incredibly grateful, hardworking, and extremely committed to reforesting their communities with fruit trees. Not a day went by during our trip that FTPF was not thanked for the gift of these trees, and this gratitude was evident in the way the trees were cared for from the moment they were put in the ground. 

Thank you for supporting this project and believing in the power of fruit trees to create a more fruitful, verdant, and just world for Amazon families in Peru!

Mayan families need fruit trees!

Dear friends,

Thank you for donating to help bring fruit trees to the children and families of Casa Guatemala! Last year we were able to plant and distribute 150 fruit trees to local families in order to provide access to the fresh, healthy, free nutrition this vulnerable community needs.

In 2020. we plan to return to Rio Dulce where over 100 families are waiting for their chance to participate in our tree distribution and workshop. However, we need your help to raise the funds to make this a reality. Please consider donating today and sharing this fundraiser far and wide!

On behalf of our team and the families we work with in Guatemala, muchísimas gracias!

Dear friend,

With your help, the Fruit Tree Planting Foundation has planted more than 80,000 trees in five countries in 2019, bringing the environmental, nutritional, economic, and social benefits of fruit trees to thousands of people in diverse communities around the world. We have planted orchards at schools, public parks, gardens, native and indigenous lands, forest reserves, community, health, and rehabilitation centers, farmers cooperatives, prisons, and nonprofits working towards food and environmental justice. 

We are so grateful to all of our friends and supporters who have contributed towards our programs this year and hope you will consider making a year-end donation to help us bring fruit trees to those in El Salvador and around the world who need them most in 2020!

Gratefully,

The FTPF Team
